Hindu World is the first general encyclopaedia of the vast world of Hinduism in two volumes. It suceeds in achieving the impossible task of covering almost every facet of Hindu life and thought embodying the result of recent scholorship as well as the traditional point of view. It contains over 700 lucidly written articles on a wide range of subjects like dress, diet, alchemy magic, tantrism, medicine, magic, erotics, science, dance festivals and handicrafts, to more frequently discussed topics like religion, philosophy, yoga, art, music, architecture, history and mythology
